UPDATE: Governor Jerry Brown signed the law which legalizes physician-assisted suicide in California. Pray for all who seek to end their lives prematurely, and for the protection of all life from conception to natural death.
On Wednesday the state Assembly of California passed a bill that would allow physicians to intentionally end the life of a patient by prescribing life-ending drugs. The bill still awaits final approval from the state Senate, but the bill’s passage in the Assembly has many Catholics concerned.

Listen below for Father Spitzer’s responses:
